Powers 12 Year old, like the standard Powers, is a blend with a good dollop of pot still content (making up the majority of the blend). Most ageing is done in ex-bourbon casks with a small amount also aged in sherry wood. In practice there are actually some very old whiskeys in this blend, some as old 20/21 years old.

Nose – Soft, fruity and honeyed. Very harmonious and elegant.

Palate -Sweet and soft with honey, vanilla and tropical fruit flavours. Quite restrained and gentle but very smooth. This has a slight prickle and bite on the finish.
